Timeless Discovery

This post is being created for Mindlovemisery’s Sunday Writing Prompt.

Donavon has always been the quiet and stand off(ish) kid in the neighborhood. When he was a few months into his fourth year, his parents took him to a specialized doctor, in hopes of ” finding a cure.” Don’t misunderstand, they’ve always dearly loved and accepted their precious boy, though predisposed to a lifetime of teasing, mockery, and bullying. They just decided to try harder; to help Donny feel a bit more ” normal”.

He had selective mutism. There’s situations when he simply can not speak, though (without awareness of his condition) it could bring serious consequences.

Now, aged five years, Donny has adapted to his new normal. He has a few buddies, goes fishing and hiking, creates art from Arizona’s famous red dirt. His most favorite pastime is exploring. There’s many overgrown areas of the west that history left behind. Covina, his best friend, would read to him, the old books and newspapers they’d find in the dilapidated saloon.

On a particular windy and overcast Thursday, the boys were trucking down the dusty path, as they did every day. They were discussing the idea of dissecting a frog, without omitting any possible disgusting detail. In the middle of a sentence, Covina heard a sudden, yet brief, shuffle in the brushes. It was to obvious to have been a small creature. On the other hand, there aren’t other humans around this part of the path either.

Curiosity won that brief moment; and the two boys changed course. Initially, the shuffle sounded as if in arms length. Had it been a creature, such could have effortlessly reached out and bit one of them. With no such luck; however, they searched and searched for what it is they heard. Nothing!

Suddenly, roughly forty yards to the west, they heard it again. The boys wasted no time scurrying to the left of their searched path and continued for three miles.

The stone path seemed to have appeared out of nowhere. It didn’t look familiar to either of the two; but, that didn’t matter. The path lead right up to an odd, unground, and shabby hobbit house.

Neither of the boys knew this place was here. They’ve never heard any adults talking about it either. Slowly and cautiously, Donny inched closer to the door. He had picked up the thickest stick nearby, and prepared himself for war. There, six inches from the stone wall laid something deep brown and medium in size. He couldn’t tell what it was, so he reached down to pick it up.

Covina slowly made his way over to Donny and stared.

“ How peculiar!” He voiced, starling Donny.

Donny’s facial expression was in agreement.

They walked over to the stone wall and sat. Opening the front cover, they saw a ticket. Train Ticket $7, Destination Unknown it read.

Covina turned the page,

” The train pulled into the station promptly at 7:07 pm…”

He clumped a small section of pages together and flipped to page 24.

” The train pulled into the station promptly at 7:07 pm…”

Again on page 36, 49, 73, and 104. The stories began the same but always ended differently from the journey before. The rest of the night, the two boys sat deep in the seclusion, reliving the tales recorded in this book.

“Maybe we should find this train station????” Covina asked Donavon.

Donny had that look in his eye and said, ” Vamos!”

What Are Your Emotions Really Telling You? | Brighter Path Counseling

This is profound:

One important note to remember is that your emotions are not facts.  Your emotions are entirely valid- meaning that they are never right or wrong.  But, they are not always based on realistic or rational thoughts

New Awards

As much as I appreciate the times I’ve been nominated, usually, I didn’t fully understand what exactly the award was about… And they’re the same ones over and over and over.

I can’t handle that. Variety is the spice of life. In my case, the spice to my coffee. I’ve created two new awards, and I’ll be creating a few more in the following days ahead.

The 1st is the Leadership Blogger Award: this was created to nominate 1-2 individuals who have exemplified noticeable and noteworthy leadership. That could be in any way.

©️2019NovaNamastè

1. The first nominee to EVER recieve such an award is, Ashleyleia, @ Mental Health at Home!!

2. My second nominee for this award is, Beckie @ BeckiesMentalMess💫

🌸🌼🌸🌼Congratulations Ladies 🌸🌼🌸🌼

There’s no questions or need to thank me. I also don’t require you to nominate others, although I think it would be a kind gesture. 🙂


Award #2 is the Out -of -this -World Blogger Award: this award is to recognize the bloggers that you feel go above and beyond in writing, as a person, with their niche, in whatever way. This individual is usually a regular poster, and assists others.

©️2019NovaNamastè

1. The very first recipient of this award is Sadje, @ Keep It Alive. She’s been one of my ultimate supporters since my early early days. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever realize lady.

2. The second incredible blogger deserving of this award is John, @ The Eclectic Contrarian. He’s consistently coated my posts with love, support, and laughs. He’s checked in on me and has been wonderful.

💖💚💖💚Congratulations Bloggers 💚💖💚💖

There’s no questions or need to thank me. I also don’t require you to nominate others, although I think it would be a kind gesture. 🙂

That’s it for now. Keep an eye out, few more are coming!! Thanks for being awesome y’all!

3.2.1 Quote Me – Hope

I was tagged, on July 3rd, by Beckie’s Mental Mess, to participate in the 3.2.1 Quote Me Challenge. The chosen word this time is HOPE 🙂 {My favorite word, tying with love and faith.}

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Helen Keller

We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.

Aristotle Onassis
(interesting twist of the word)

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Robert Kennedy

My own:

Let hope not fall and fade, but rather, live and grow through acts of kindness.

Unpeople Pleasing🤔😂

Can’t say I didn’t take accountability for myself! Haha. Listen though y’all, going through life and trying to please everyone isn’t living… It’s existing. You’re trying to prevent conflict. You’re trying to keep a consistent flow. You’re trying to be cool with everyone.

Is that being honest with yourself? Seems to me, that’s a lifestyle of someone who doesn’t know who he/she is. This individual just blends in with the rest, never ruffling feathers.

Knowing who you are is important. Living your truths is even more important… And guess what, more often than not, truth is going to piss someone off! It’s true. You’re going to decide to set yourself free; and people are absolutely going to hate you for it…

Maybe you’re free from their control.

Maybe you’re free from their munipulation.

Maybe free from abuse, neglect, and misuse.

Whatever you leave behind, and whatever future YOU decide for you, count on making a few enemies.

But, tell yourself it’s ok… Because it is. You’re not living for anyone but yourself anymore. This is especially true for those so called ” close family members and friends”, that never treated you how you deserved.

When you’re doing things right, you’ll have people who disapprove. Those who love you, will get over it. Those who don’t, are finally facing an issue they’ve suppressed for to long and it finally resurfaced. (They should be thanking you!).

But, most importantly, you’ll be living… And that’s the purpose of being alive.

Monday Greetings

I hope you all had a good weekend. I actually had a pretty good one, all things considered.

Saturday night I went to bed at 9:15, got up about three for snack, and went back to sleep until 8:15. I can’t remember the last time I slept all like that.

Today, I got a few things accomplished and really tackled my kitchen. Decluttering ALWAYS feels good. My dishes are about done, yeah it feels nice.

Other than that, it’s been a chill weekend. To hot and tired to do much else.

Good Morning y’all.

Looking Kinda Blue

Photo Credit Attached

I’m feeling so emotional, sensitive, and blue today 😦 I’m certain it’s a bad mix of little sleep, crappy weather, and not enough time with my boyfriend. In trying so hard not to be sad or whiny or pathetic or sensitive. I’m trying hard to keep facts front and center so I don’t irrationally make something from nothing. I’m trying hard to accept where I am and not let this ruin my day. Something created this, but it’s what it is and I’m trying to just “get through it.”

How’s everyone else doing today? Tomorrow’s Friday!… Anyone with weekend plans? Maybe some positivity would do us all some good.

In a comment, would you please share with me something you’re thankful for or that made you smile.

Julia’s Story Part 1: Truth of the Matter

StoryTime

” The sun will always shine and the moon will always glow, she said while staring into the distance. He smiled as he put his hand on her shoulder. As she turns around, he says

” Julia, dear, I have something I need to tell you.” His face went flushed, as if he was just hit with the flu.

“Roger, what is it? You look as if you’ve just seen a ghost.” Julia t responded.

“Come, sit next to me.”

“Roger, what on earth is the matter?” Julia said in utmost concern.

” I don’t know how to tell you this; I really didn’t know how to accept it myself. ” He added.

” Well, whatever it is, I’m certain we can get through it together!” She reassred Roger.

” But you see,” He began,” it won’t be us being through this?”

” Whatever do you mean? You’re not making any sense Roger. We have been through so much, and…”

” Julia, I realize I’m gay!!” He interjected.

She just stared at him, not sure what to say. Blinking in complete shock, she turned around to watch the moon.

Her mind started with questions, how did she not know? How did she miss the signs, after 25 years? Was he seeing someone else? How did he realize he was gay?

” I’m so speech… ROGER!!!” She screamed.

While wrapped up in her thoughts about this latest discovery, Roger suffered a sever heart attack.

” ROGER! ROGER, WAKE UP!!” She wailed

By this point, closer bys had called the ambulance. The ems were now there, attempting CPR.

With no avail, they apologized to Julia for her loss.

” I can’t believe this,” Julia settled onto the cement wall, ” I would rather have had him alive and with a partner, than to not have him at all.”

As the moon continued to rise, she continued to cry…

Accepting What Is

I don’t know how. I don’t know why.

A situation, such as this, requires one thing… acceptance.

We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve just had to accept the truth. Sometimes, the truth is difficult. Sometimes, the truth is positive and we struggle to believe it.

Why do you struggle with accepting?

Insecurity? Rejection? Disowning? Fear? Bitterness? Anger? Abuse?

When we face the “why”, we can heal apart of ourselves. Healing can open new doors; and, create opportunities for beautiful beginnings.

Stress

Over the years I’ve learned that fighting can be resolved. I’ve learned that disagreements can result in a compromise. More importantly, I’ve learned that communication is a process of voicing thoughts and needs, actively listening to thoughts and needs of others, and all parties respecting these of everyone! When someone feels 1. Heard and 2. Respected, things can go along way.

The other major lesson I learned is gaslighting is a waist of time. I used to include this in my arguments, simply to try and make myself feel better and the other individual feel guilty. Manipulating minds is the game… though, I didn’t understand it as such then. Now, I’m more confident in my decisions and understanding of behavior and my mind, that manipulation from others just p***es me off.

Right now, I’m in a position of just that. I’m sitting here in disbelief that I’m trying to be the responsible adult, taking care of the tasks that need accomplished before I end up in a worse situation. The others involved are pissed because they don’t understand (why the hell do humans do that? ) … they don’t need the money like I do. They can leisurely take trips. That’s wonderful that they can. I never said otherwise.

What I’m saying is if my car dies before I can make enough, I’m screwed!

But, obviously that’s fucked up thinking!

So be it.

Mental Health & Suicide

I’ve been on both sides of this coin. I’ve earned my place to speak on the subject… And I’ve been given my right to speak up about the hellish nightmare it creates.

For those in pain, like David was, I understand you want the pain to stop… But, it won’t until you choose to live through, heal, and past it. Like David, you have access to a hotline… Individuals who WILL listen. You have access to complete strangers here, who DO care! You have access to legalized Weed in the event of unbearable physical pain. There’s resources available.

But, what’s not going to happen is your pain stopping if you choose to take your life! Let me repeat that, your pain WILL NOT stop just because you choose to take your life… It won’t. Accept it… Face it… Repeat it… Do whatever necessary for you to get it… Your pain, this immense pain and grief that you feel… That’s haunting you and robbing you of sleep… That’s stealing your joy and happiness… That’s sucking the life out of you… That pain… Will just be placed on the shoulders of those you leave behind… You’re choosing to throw the batton at them… When they’re even not in the race. You’re handing over your pain, expecting them to breathe and smile… And live and work and parent and be… When you weren’t responsible enough to do that.

I was 28… with an 18month old baby. He wasn’t thinking about OUR daughter… or the HELP THAT IS AVAILABLE! He overdosed… abandoning My Zivah! Suicide IS selfish! It doesn’t stop the dead’s pain but passes it on to the Living!…

If you hurt this much, do something about it! There’s options for you. No one else can make you, and no one else can change you… No one else can decide this for you, and no one else should….

#SpeakUp

#BreaktheSilence

#Suicideawareness

#NeverGiveUp

#BreaktheCycle

#ChoosetoLive

#ItsUpToYou

He abandoned his daughter! Every single day I’m excessively protective Of MY ZIVAH… and I couldn’t even keep this away from her. See the “survivors guilt” and “hurt pain and suffering”…. It’s hell. Don’t do this to those you say you love… Because suicide solves NOTHING!!!!

I love the letter T

Screenshot Memories

I don’t remember how I got here.

I don’t remember the chain of events.

Were others involved or just me?

Did anyone unfortunately died?

How do I not remember?

.

She was acting rather rashly,

Irresponsibility and hastily.

The date was a shit-show,

And he was obnoxiously full of himself.

How did she not see this?

.

Sipping on her wine, she laughed,

This online dating isn’t so bad.

Deciding to give this a chance.

He’s funny, too, she added

“ Oh, he’s attractive!” She murmured.

Swiping right, whoosh, she waits.

I mean N.E.V.E.R…

My Life is NEVER boring~

Many years ago, [Lordie, did I just say that🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😂😂] { 5.5 to be exact}] I decided that, that, was the headline of my life. At the time, I was #firsttimemom with a six month old! I had NO CLUE what I was doing. I had no clue what I was doing married again, completely dependent on my husband, with a new baby, and unemployed. I knew I wanted my mom, more than ever; and, she couldn’t be with me.

As time passed, and my decisions took me down an unpaved, dark, and scary path… I kept going. I had to. Little by little, small victory after small victory, the darkness lifted. Zivah grew older, and I’ve magically retained nature hair color.

In 2016, our quaint superpower duo team became a trio! This biracial beauty queen came into our lives; and, I’ve never been sane sense.

She’s got crazy advanced sense ability. I promise she was speaking full phrases at a year old; and, she’s as strong as an ox. She and her sister converse with their own kiddo language. I referee the arguments, mock the tantrums (this is a very effective technique. It feels great and the kids laugh eventually?!), and pray for enough money to buy pizza for an easy dinner.

Now that years have since passed, my older daughter is taking life by the horns and attending school. It was an expierence, to say the least. The numbed one piece of (unsolicited) advice I’d give EVERY parent, is if you’re not satisfied with the school of which your child attends, speak up and do something about it. Our schools are to prepare our future generations for success. If they’re not meeting our standards, what are we saying to our children, by being passive.

My younger daughter is home with me, four of the five school days. We enjoy time together; and, her cuddles are the absolute best.

I’m now a WAHM (a whammy lol) (work at home mom)! Logically speaking, it’s the best position for me! Here’s the catch, I hate NEW & UNCOMFORTABLE! I literally worked down anxiousness for two days, about these 12 calls I made this morning. It’s typical for an INFJ to be like this. I call, after hours, to make appointments, just so I could leave messages. LOL🌼

Anyway, I hope you new followers know I greatly appreciate you joining me in this crazy blogging journey. I hope all of you remember the awesome person looking back at you in the mirror deserves love.

Hope to see you in my notifications 🌻🙏🏼💖

Yucky Season

It’s a dry season

Alone & lonely season

Insecure and sad season

It’s a reflection season

Muted silence season

A sense of otherness season.

It’s an annoying season

Whatever, I don’t care season

Fine then, Unfollow me! Season

It’s a wine season

Cry and scream season.

It’s a retract season

Isolate and withdraw season

A “whatever” season.

Thursday Thankfulness

I’m thankful for

The warmth of today’s weather.

Many of you here, my support system.

My vehicle is now running.

Sleep

Seeing both my babies tonight.

Listening to them laughing about silliness.

Parenthood

Food

The Botanical Garden admission is free tomorrow!

The daffodils and tulips blooming.

My new coffee cup.

This job opportunity

Coffee Share ☕️🍵

Good afternoon (almost)~

Please come in and have a seat. The coffee’s ready and the hot water for tea is almost ready.

The weather is gorgeous, here in Cleveland! I’m so thankful for that. I was worried about your drive up. The warmth feels amazing; and, the tulips are wonderful aren’t they?

So how has your week started? Anything big going on that you’d like to talk about or need to talk about? How’d your gardening going? I’ve yet to start but I am very excited about it.

This morning, I got up at my daughters Father’s house. Zivah and I stayed over because I had a huge fight with the neighbors yesterday. What about? Parking? It’s really worked it’s way into my balanced peace of mind. You know those super annoying inconveniences? That’s what this is! Zivah was a bit out of her element, but she got into school with little emotional discouragement. She’s an HSC (highly sensitive child). So much of what she feels, I did when I was her age.

Once I got her to school, I drove back and worked out a plan to get my car in the shop. That’s caused major anxiety over the last week, but it’s almost over. Bluh.

I’m going to let you enjoy your coffee, have a marvelous day!
